Time To Talk Day 2019

Time To Change is a mental health campaign linked to Mind and Rethink, and in February each year they organise an awareness event called Time To Talk Day.

This can be a a great opportunity to get the nation talking and the conversation started around mental health. Too many people are still made to feel ashamed because of a mental health problem, so this event looks to combat that by reducing stigma.

We always like to get involved on the day and get people talking about mental health. This year we had a presence at Aldermore Bank in Wilmslow and Sky’s offices in Stockport.

We spoke to over 130 people across both sites, reaching out to hundreds more at Sky via email, leaflet distribution and photos.

The event also allowed us to raise further awareness of Hate Crime as part of our efforts which took place earlier in the same week, mainly centered on an event we hosted at Stockport College.

Thank you to everyone who engaged with us for Time To Talk Day, but you don’t have to wait for an event like this to have a conversation about mental health. If you need to talk or some information, you can always contact us for a chat.
